The premier economic forum, the Sri Lanka Economic Summit (SLES) 2019 will discuss the global economy in the morning session of Day 1.

In a session focused on the global dynamics in the next decade, the current discourse in the global environment will be discussed. These mostly centre on trade wars, Brexit, and the next policy step by the US Federal Reserve, from amongst others. 

In a broader context, global financial market dynamics, a rapidly transforming technology landscape, dynamics in labour, and the shift of power in manufacturing and service industries are also weighing in in this dynamic global economy. 

The presenters at this plenary will include Shri Suresh Prabhu, former Indian Minister of Commerce and Industry, and Civil Aviation of the Government of India, and MPRS and PMs Sherpa G20 and G7; Standard Chartered Bank CEO Vietnam and ASA Cluster Markets Nirukth Sapru, and Sri Lanka Board of Investment Chairman Mangala Yapa.

Panellists at the event will feature Ceylon Chamber of Commerce Chairman Dr. Hans Wijayasuriya, Hayleys PLC Co-Chairman (Non-Executive) and Vallibel One PLC Chairman/MD Dhammika Perera, and Sunshine Holdings PLC Group Managing Director Vish Govindasamy. Lakshman Kadirgamar Institute of International Relations and Strategic Studies in Sri Lanka Executive Director Dr. Ganeshan Wignaraja will moderate the session.

This SLES is scheduled for 17 and 18 September, at the Cinnamon Grand. For further information regarding the event, please email niroshini@chamber.lk or alikie@chamber.lk.
